Folks, According to local news outlets Sheriff Puckett realized that he was missing a few steps in conducting background checks on those who purchase concealed weapon permits and took the appropriate steps to swiftly correct the issue.
The key is that Sheriff Puckett's office was conducting the NCIC required checks but the NIC check was not being completed.
Our sheriff went to great lengths to ensure that he corrected all shortfalls and deficiencies.
It is difficult to catch every single shortfall when taking charge of a new post. The sheriff took office on or around 17 January 2019. Thank You! Sheriff Puckett for going above and beyond when the issue was found.
